Attendees of Sports Pyschology Training
for Practitioners have reported dramatic results.
"Dr. Neff and Dr. Zaichkowsky run an absolutely first rate
program. I have always had an interest in sports psychology as an
athlete and as a coach. The seminar gave me a deeper understanding
of how to apply these strategies and techniques. My colleague and
I used the seminar as an impetus to launch a Sport Psychology Program
at a leading area hospital. This seminar was instrumental in giving
us information and motivation to launch this endeavor. I am very
grateful to Dr. Neff and Dr. Zaichkowsky for their willingness to
share their expertise!" Dr. Steve Durant, Clinical Psychologist,
"After attending the sports psychology training given by Frederick
Neff, Psy.D. and Len Zaichkowsky, Ph.D., I found I was able to work
with clients more effectively in the areas of motivational and performance
enhancement. Both Fred and Len are excellent practitioners and trainers.
After the training the ProFormance, I became the sports psychology
consultant for the Boston University Women's Lacrosse Team."

Attendees and Instructors at Sports Pyschology Training Class for Psychologists
“The material they taught has been useful to me both personally
and professionally. I have used the strategies and interventions
they taught to increase my performance and motivation in my competitive
swimming, in the running of my practice, and in general day-to-day
living. The strategies are universal and can be used in sports,
business and management, the arts, and in clinical work. I have
employed some of the interventions with patients who struggle with
depression, negative self-beliefs and low motivation. The strategies
are generally specific, concrete and easy to learn and apply.”
Douglas M. Deville, Psy.D., Boston, MA
"The sports psychology training seminar with Frederick Neff,
Psy.D., has enabled me to enhance my psychotherapy practice to include
working with athletes in my office and "on the field".
The seminar allows each psychologist to explore their unique interest
in a particular performance domain. The material presented was comprehensive
and applicable, and the ongoing optional group supervision has been
an extraordinary support for making the transition to working with
athletes." Sharon Chirban, Ph.D.
